My personal favorite games are the first two Oddworlds in PS One. 2.5D works if the world is still alive. I enjoyed Shadow Complex and TRINE as well this gen because they have rich environments. I personally look at 2D as just another camera angle. Games should use it but not 100% of the time unless the game is designed for it like a Fighter, although I would love to see a FF Dissidia on PS3 in HD.
